Ducey sits down with KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac & Gaydos each month to discuss issues hitting the state.
Arizona Educators United and the Red For Ed movement have been leading the charge on statewide protests and walk-ins for weeks, including protests at KTAR News 92.3 FM’s studios as Gov. Doug Ducey appeared on Mac & Gaydos.
All of the protesters were wearing red as a part of #RedForED, a movement started by Arizona Teachers United to show support for the state’s teachers and to demand schools be fully funded.
The governor was scheduled to interview at 5:15 p.m., but around 200 protesters filled the sidewalks around 4 p.m.
